The outcome ot tho recent case of Per kins againt tho Houston Texas Central I'.allway company is worthy of note. Mr. and Mrs. Charles Perkins were passcngets in a Pullman sleeper. At night drunken mm were nilowed to enter the sleeper and to nso profano anel improper language, which caused Mrs. Perkins great mental suffering and caused her to lose her night's sleep. Mr. Perkins sued the rail road company and tho jury gavo him a verdict of $300. This verdict has been sus tained by the court ot criminal appeals of Texas. In view of the cases now boing contest fd before the Supromo Court of the. Unl et! States Involving the question of tho nnstltutlon.illty of the clauto of tho war revenue act Impo-drg a tax on inherit ances it is Interesting to note that last year tho commissioner of internal rovenuo collected fl.233,433 as taxes on legacies. The commissioner has now instructed col lectors throughout tho country not to force tho payment of the inheritance tax, but to .iwalt tho decision of the Supremo Court in tho matter. In this connection It may bo noted that among the cases pend ing Is that involving the will of the late Cornelius Vanderbilt, on which It ls esti mated tho ta-i will be at least J),000,W0. The good souls who were predicting tho disruption ot the republican party in the Empire State aro now forced to witness the spectacle ot Piatt nnd Roosevelt agreeing upon a programme for the repub licans during tho coming session of the Legislature, by means of mutual conces sions. Their programme Is said tobetodrop "Lou" Payn from tho ofllco of insuranco commissioner when his term expires; to cut tho term of tho mayor ot New York to two years and to let pollco legislation alone. In this connection it will bo of In terest to learn that tho coming session of the New York legislators at Albany Is likely not to bo prolific In Important meas ures, nnd there Is a general tendency to cut down legislation to tho smallest pos sible compass. In time our neighbors of New York may come to tho point of adopting biennial sessions ot their Legis lature. Ju(le" Powers on Polyjnmy, Tho position of tho representatives of Vermont lu Congres.s has neve- been equivocal on tho subject of tho suppres sion nf Mormon polygamy; nor has their opposition been conllncd to sentimental disapproval or simple denunciation. lu f.ect tho history of tho warfare on that "relic of barbarism" Miowh thai tho Stato which gave birth to Drlgham Young, has been In tin very forefront In the enact ment ot the moasurrs for tho suppression of the national disgrace ot polygamy. It was Justin S. Morrill of Vermont who, when he was a congressman introduced and cnrrled through tho first bill against 1'Jlygamy. Tho Kdmund.s law, ns every body knows, is the existing statute. It may not be as well known that when thu 1 111 for thu admission ot Ptnh ns a Stuto was under consideration, tho repivsinta Uve from our First district, Congressman Powers, offered and secured tho passage of an amendment providing that the Slalo constitution which the people wero about lo adopt, mint contain a clause forever prohibiting polygamy; and further pro viding that such prohibitory clause must not bo repcabd or changed without tho ei nsent of Congress. Otlur States may chnngn their constitution ns tliey wlll; but the Stato of Utah can never chango her constitution to as lo permit polygamy, for nothing Is more certain than that Con gress will never consent to nny letting down of tho bars, on that subject. New Phase or tho Sampson-Schley Dispute. Admiral Dewey must thank his four starB that he Is no longer obliged to strug gle for recognition of his rank, when ho contemplates the Ignoble controversy be tween tho friends of Sampfon and Schley -h strife whcse ond no prophetic eyet has yet been able to foresee, It was quite generally assumed Hint tho seml-olilclnl stntcment regarding Schley's stutur,, tc ronlly inado by Secretary Long of tho navy department would give tho dispute an cft'ectlvo quietus, but that tlttcruf.co seems merely to have changed tho trend of the controversy, which hns broken out In a new direction, tho latest phase of tho dlsputo Involving tho project to create Sampson mid Schley vlcc-ndmlrnls. Word comes from Washington that the administration has been tirgul to settle this unfortunate nnd unyecmly wr.inelo by making Sampson nnd Schley vice mi nerals In tho order named.' The friends of Schley opposo this proposition owing to tho fact that this would reverse thn comparative rank ot the two commanders. At the pres.m tlmo Sohlcy stnnds two ntimb"rs nhe-id of Sampson, having reach cd that position In tho usual order of promotion for services nnd tho retirement of olllcers abovo him. It ho wcro to bo promoted from tha position ot rear ad mlnul to vice admiral, It would bo with the erudition that Sampson should pass him nnd stand ii'-xt to Admiral Dewey. Schley's friends mo undci stood to hold that It ho Is worthy of promotion at all, It should bn In tho pioscnt order.

VERMONT POLITICS. The "Attempt lo Kill On" J5r. Prouty. Itefcrring to a statement by the New port Kxpress to the effect that before Mr. Prouty's nnmo was considered by tho President for tho position of Interstate, eommeiio commissioner, ho signified his willingness to appoint (Sen. Grout lo the position; nnd that Gen. Grout declined, and suggested Prouty In his stead. C. F. Itanniy, en., of Newport says: "I am Informed by a gentleman who Is in a position to know the facts that tho President never signified his wllllngni .-s to appoint Gen. Grout. That no other name than Mr. Prouty's was vresented to the President. It ls true that a powerful political friend of Gen. Grout suggested that ho try to secure the commlssloncrshlp, nnd prom ised him support to that end, and that Gen. Gr. ut declined It, saying his ambi tion was for the sonatorshlp, and that ho had no desire for tho position of commlrf slonor. The attempt to kill off Mr. Prouty by means of the commlssloncrshlp having failed, an attempt seems to bo made- now to kill him olt by misrepresentation. "We trust the papers which have copied your Item ns n 'piece of leislde history' wlll glv as much space to tills second chapter ot It as they hnvo to the first. There Is a vast difference between Doing offered a position by the Pre: idmt, nnd being offeted tho support of a friend, to secure the President's approval." A SURE CURE FOR CROUP.

Long ago, near David's clty Un a shepherd band, Fell a glory such as never Shone tn se-a or land.

From the East tho Wlso Men journey, Se, king Tor a King; To the Monirch costly Incense, Gold and ir.yrrh they bring. Light that shone on humblo shepherds.

BrattlejoiO Reformer. MOUNTAIN RULE THREATENED. The "mountain line" rule is threaten 'd' If the proposed plan for re-apporiionment of representation In the republican na tional convention should prevail, Vermont would be entitled to nine delegates In stead of eight as at present. It Is ca y enough to select eight men without of fense, by adheilng to tho rule and choos ing four from each side, ot tho mountains. Rut where shall this odd man come from? That's tho question. And, by tho way, Is there u (ommon-stiiso reason for fol lowing tho mountain line rule, anyway? Isn't It more of a subterfuge than a nocs slty? Doesn't It simply spare mn the cmbaiussment of making a choice some times when they don't want to? St. Al bans Messenger. A REFERENDUM DEMANDED. The law (tho prohibitory law) ia the work of the "great body of tho people of Vermont." Il was not true when tho law wns tlrst adopted v h n the Idea was now and had tho advantage of a great moral enthusiasm behind it without tho saving effect of experience, and when it was the chief Issue of the electlcn of 1S.",3 when the voto stood 20.fl0 to 1S.142. That It Is not truo now vas prac tically confts-ed by the last legislature when It refused to submit the quesilon of a vote of tho people. Stripped of all subterfuges, tho reason for that refusal was a fear that tho people, would repudi ate the law if given n direct chance at it, for it was perfectly obvious that If, after a ir years trial tho verdict should be one of approval, and In favor of tho continu ance of the law, it would add trermtidous ly to its nural force.
